There are lots of good points to having a child, although while pregnant they might not be immediately apparent.
When you bring a new child home, everything slows down. Nothing is so important that it can’t be done later to give time to welcome this new person in the family. The family plan changes from:
- go to work
- pay bills
- hold baby
- take a nap and
- “Some cupcakes would taste good, wouldn’t they?”
It is easy to forget how good it feels to have a new, warm child sleeping on your chest.
Staring takes on new importance.
Everyone is happy for you.
As much as it is hard to imagine loving another child as much as your current child, it is at once, not only possible, but impossible to not happen.
On the other side, I might mention offhand, if it is possible to avoid having a c-section, do avoid it. Surgery will always be surgery, and it is not “no biggie”. Recovery time will take much longer. Going into an operating room to have a baby to me anyway, seemed really unnatural.
That said, how can the result not make the process pale in importance?
